EPA proposes restrictions for
new wood stoves

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/7/2014 12:32:47 PM

FAIRBANKS, Alaska – The federal Environmental Protection Agency has proposed new standards for wood stoves that would reduce the maximum amount of fine particulate emissions allowed for new stoves sold in 2015 and 2019. Maximum emissions would be reduced by one-third next year and by 80 percent in five years, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported. Fine particulate pollution is made up of solid particles and liquid droplets that measure 2.5 micrometers in diameter or less. The EPA currently certifies non-catalytic wood stoves if they produce less than 7.5 grams of fine particulate per hour. Fine particulate absorbed by breathing has

"EPA estimates that for every dollar spent to comply with these standards, the American public will see between $118 and $267 in health benefits...The total health and economic benefits of the proposed standards are estimated to be at $1.8 (billion) to $2.4 billion annually"

EPA must have an internal handbook which teaches bureaucrats how to blithely pull numbers out of the air, with zero documentation.

´sides, many people find wood stoves very relaxing. I think the new EPA standards will cause a dramatic rise in heart attacks and strokes.

My estimate is that for every dollar spent to comply with these standards, the American public will see a rise in health care costs between $118 and $267 ...I estimate the total health and economic cost of the proposed standards to be at $1.8 (billion) to $2.4 billion annually.

OK....

Just haul yer happyazz down here to Texas and tell all these rural folks who live in the woods that you want to get all up into the details of their wood stoves.

Mine BTW is over a hundred years old, made of crazy thick cast iron and it works great.

Perhaps THIS will start the revolution.

Maybe not but get on down here and let´s give it a go.

Read the article, these regulations are for new stoves and do not affect the ones in use. If you want an unregulated stove go and get one now before the regulations can be put into effect. If everyone in the cities used a wood stove we would have problems.

Restrictions that will virtually be impossible to meet. They regulate old stove use by prohibiting using your stove on specific no-burn days. Is it just coincidence the no burn days are becoming more and more frequent?

I intend to fully comply with the regulation to limit "Fine particulate pollution is made up of solid particles and liquid droplets that measure 2.5 micrometers in diameter or less."

The way I will do it is to burn only rolled up EPA Regulations.

They wouldn´t print their stuff on polution-paper would they?

I´ll have an endless supply of fuel.

Its because people in the cities don´t use wood stoves that makes this ridiculous, #7. Such a small percentage of Americans use wood stoves exclusively for heat that it makes you wonder why the hell the EPA is even bothering. Maybe one of the enviro-nazis at the EPA has a neighbor with a wood stove and he/she has the power to stop it by God!

What next? Fireplaces, grills, candles? Don´t you see, it never stops with these types. Their lust for power and control knows no end.

Yes, the ultimate goal is to prevent the use of wood stoves, fire places, barbeque pits, etc. States like NH and Oregon are already started down that path. If the EPA backs down, they will lose their ability to force states to reduce emissions by 50 to 70% with the Cross State Pollution rules.

The EPA should consider a project that would stop lighting from starting forest fires. I am sure these fires cause far more pollution than all the wood stoves in the U>S> combined. On the other hand, maybe asking China to agree to shut down all their factories would accomplish the same goal. better yet, shut down the EPA, because they are the greatest polluter, of
mis-truths. ( My opinion ). along with the Dept of the Interior, with their (save the
"whatever" mantra) causing chaos in many sectors.

for all of the RINO apologists out there, the ones who post here that we just *must* be "broken glass" voters for ANY doofus with an (R) after the name, please remember this and similar matters
the EPA was established via one of those "stroke of a pen, law of the land" diktats by a Statist Republican, Richard Nixon.
Was it abolished by the next Republican prez, Ford? no
Was it abolished by the next Republican prez, Reagan? no
Was it abolished by the next Republican prez, Bush ´41? no
Was it abolished by the next Republican prez, Bush ´43? no
anyone think that Dole, or McCain, or Romney would have, had they been elected? not likely.
How about any of the ones being touted by the RNC insiders - Christie, for example? not too bloody likely
do NOT move to defund this atrocity. It needs to be **abolished**, ripped out by the roots, fire all the bureaucrats, demolish the buildings, throw every single one of their regs, back to Day 1, into the non-carbon-capture incinerator.
oh, and we need to know the names, the specific names with pictures, of the worthless bums who are proposing this particular idiocy. It will make the public floggings easier to arrange.

Most homes around Lake Tahoe have already had to rip out their stoves and switch to 100% electric, gas or oil. I was lucky, it was a new stove but won´t be new now. Can´t sell with old stoves that heat better than the new ones.

The worst part of this stry is the justification of intrusive regulation of these stoves by equating dollars spent on the regulation to dollars saved in health care.

I have warned since day one that Obamacares most destructive pathology would be this use of "health care savings" to justify control of every activity known to man. Once gov money s used to "pay" for healthcare absolutely any activity that could be shown to insignificantly effect health would become the governments responsibility.

Smoking was low hanging fruit, now its wood burning. Coal generation is justified by lung disease, automobile use will be a big target. As will all manner of physical activities.

A few things will remain sacred, for now, Alcohol consumption, legal marijuana, unfettered promiscous sex, that kind of thing, but everything else....

Every alphabet NGO is just drooling at the endless opportunities to "save on healthcare costs" by endless regulation.

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have
